Good coaches can improve the lives of players, the culture of clubs, and the strength of communities. Great coaches can develop the next generation of world-class players who inspire a nation.
In the United States, many coaches do not have access to adequate training. Young players from underserved communities especially miss the opportunity to learn and grow from a licensed and educated coach.
U.S. Soccer’s Coach for Community is a special program providing FREE education and resources to coaches, with an emphasis on reaching new coaches in underserved communities across America. In partnership with MSYSA, Coach for Community delivers in-person learning sessions and access to online grassroots licenses – at no cost to participating coaches!
The Maryland State Youth Soccer Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. MSYSA has launched our donation fund to support initiatives like Coach for Community, driving diversity, equity, and inclusion, in our sport.
Take a moment now to show your support under-resourced coaches everywhere by donating TODAY. Together, we can unite more people to learn and grow through soccer.
